I joined the Clinical Trials Research Unit in July 2019 as a Research Assistant. I am currently working on the PITSTOP study. I completed a BSc in Psychology, and an MSc in Health Psychology at the University of Manchester in 2015 and 2016, respectively. I previously worked as a Health and Wellbeing Coach for a housing association delivering focussed, one-to-one mental health and employment support. I have also worked as a Social Prescribing Advisor which involved working alongside primary care services, and supporting patients with non-medical needs. I also have experience as a Community Research Assistant for a charity which involved collecting, analysing and reporting patients views and experiences of health and social care services.

Current Projects

  • PITSTOP: Pilonidal sinus Treatment: Studying the Options. An observational cohort with nested mixed methods and qualitative design to investigate surgical options for the treatment of pilonidal sinus disease.

Research Interests

  • Behaviour change in pregnancy/post-partum
  • Health behaviours including: dietary intake, physical inactivity, alcohol consumption and smoking
